Our new favorite hotel, (not that we travel much) is Embassy Suites, and the one in Lubbock didn't disappoint. It was quite unique!
Lorelei wanted to play "Go Fish" but forgot to bring cards, so she made her own. She beat me twice and John once. We think the cards were rigged.
The breakfast buffet was delicious as always and the best part...I didn't have to make it! Our room was right off the courtyard.
It was a cool crisp fall day. It truly felt like fall on campus. Leaves were changing colors and falling everywhere.
The architecture and sculptures all over campus were amazing. We all fell in love with Texas Tech!
Thanksgiving was soon after we returned home. My mom, as usual, hosted a beautiful dinner.
We are always so grateful for her wonderful cooking.
Thanks Nana and Papa!
Even though I said I wasn't read to embrace the holidays...well, I did! Even Bailey was surprised with how quickly I had up the Christmas decorations. We decided to go ahead again with our 4.5 foot Charlie Brown tree. We considered buying a new and larger tree this year, but I have to admit, there's something about this small one that I just love.
Our elf Finland promptly arrived on December 1...I loved the look of awe Lorelei had.
It was magical...much like my life feels right now, in these ordinary moments.
